Hearing what the acoustic environment will sound like (6:03) By kkstif. The Swedish Visualisation research programme contains the project LISTEN - Auralisation of urban sound landscapes, which is aimed at developing auralisation tools in order to assess noise environments right from the planning stage of residential areas, e.g. ones that are close to noisy traffic routes or railways. With the help of an auralisation tool, different solutions to improving the acoustic environment can be evaluated simply by listening and comparing their effect on the acoustic environment for example, the influence of different noise barriers.
